I embarked on a great experiment yesterday. For the 1st time in about 15 years, I shaved. The reason was two-fold. One, I hadn't seen myself without a beard in that long of a time that I wanted to see if I still looked like a dork without one. The second reason was that dexter_fox gave Carol and me a face painting kit and I wanted to see how I looked done up as a tiger. In that same vein, Carol is planning on taking a class in theatrical make-up and I thought I would be a good practice dummy for her. She also has a book of some really cool animal designs. And so off came the beard. Judge for yourself. I have a feeling it will be coming back, hopefully before FC.
